When People Write for Free, Who Pays?

Article on Gawker

I write articles  for the newsletter at work. I don’t get paid any extra for it,  You could say that I’m writing for free.

Is this bad? I don’t think so. This month I’ll be launching my first Kindle novels through Indiegogo (trust me, you’ll hear about it here among other sources), and I have a few other projects too… the newsletter for me is pure non-fiction though; I always benefit from further practice in that area. The more that I write, the better that I get in it, and the more confident I grow.

Those I’d see as reasons that while I don’t get cash for it it’s not really free. Plus for other magazines it will be for money.

Fiction or Non?

Publishing on Kindle non-fiction is the better seller. People want their problems answered.

The difficulty for me is that I’m a fiction author. Fiction also sells, but not as much.

I’ll strive for a happy medium: I’ll publish many non-fiction books in order to make more money… however I’ll still write and publish fiction to satisfy myself and to make some money too.
